Movement has always been Lara’s favorite form of medicine, beginning in her early years as an athlete and dancer, later leading her to graduate school for physical therapy. Combining her love of anatomy and movement, she developed YogaStream, a challenging and playfully creative yoga method that emphasizes alignment, intelligent sequencing and functional movement. She aims to teach from a sustainable and strong vantage point, using her knowledge as a movement specialist to help all practice yoga safely. A lover of inversions (never having tried a handstand until her mid-30’s!), she emphasizes a powerful core to access the deep potential for growth in the body and mind.
Lara is the owner and director of the YogaStream studio in Princeton, NJ, where she teaches classes and directs its 200 hour and 500 hour YA- certified teacher training school. She also leads international workshops, trainings and retreats and mixes it up in the kitchen as a natural foods vegan chef.
